Prepare CentOS 6.3 within VirtualBox

For testing purpose, I need a CentOS 6.3. So I download CentOS DVD image. Installed it in VirtualBox as web server.
Note: The network of guest system is using bridged, which allow the guest access internet, and also allow the computer in Lan can access the guest system.
The installation is simple, no problem. I would like to share my experience I met later.
1) Prepare the network
Only lo, or loopback is active. I can not access Internet from the CentOS.
eth0 is not showing when I run ifconfig command.

How to add windows to a CentOS 6.3 server

I installed a CentOS 6.3 server on virtualbox. It has no windows, or GUI installed.
Now I wanted to add a GUI to my server, but I could not find easy documentation showing how to add a GUI, or Gnome in this case, to a CentOS 6 server installation.
There are a lot of results of how to do this, but things have been renamed in CentOS 6, so that made it more difficult to figure out. Also, there are “Short Names” and I am assuming they are called “Long Names” associated with a yum groupinstall, which added to my confusion.
To add Gnome/GUI to a minimal CentOS 6 install run (short name version):

yum groupinstall basic-desktop desktop-platform x11 fonts

And the “long name” version:

yum groupinstall "Desktop" "Desktop Platform" "X Window System" "Fonts"

Fix the problem of Google Drive crash

Today, when I click the Google Drive folder in Windows Explorer, the Windows Explorer is crashed and give an error message. I forget to record it.
Anyway, I right click the Google Drive icon on the status bar, and click about. It shows version number is $1.1.3019.0542. I am not sure if it is the latest one. I did google the problem with the error message. No good answer. Someone has same problem and switch off the Google Drive.
